Alright, so here are the parts I've decided on from all the suggestions I have received for my bro's comp that he will be using for photo editing, gaming, movies, and music. I've pretty much decided on getting these parts, with the EXCEPTION of the mobo, monitor, and DVD burner. I would like to save a little more money on the mobo, but still want a good one. Are there any other cheaper alternatives for the mobo besides the one listed below? Any other final suggestions are welcome before I order these parts tomorrow.
**NOTE: All these prices have shipping included (if shipping applies) but TAX is NOT included yet**
Monitor: $495.11 (including tax and some $8 recycler fee at Circuit City -- will be picked up in store); cheapest I've seen this monitor...if anyone else can find this monitor for a cheaper price, let me know please!
